flower garden

I am really happy with the way this card turned out. I love the new embossing folder, Flower Garden which is available May 1st from the Summer Mini Catalgue. How I made those poppies stand out is I cut out a piece of Whisper White cardstock and inserted it into the embossing folder and then ran it through my Big Shot die cutting machine. Then I brayered on some Pear Pizazz classic ink, which really made the impression "pop". Love it! I tore the edge to give it some texture and sponged on a bit of the same colour ink . I layered that piece onto Pear Pizazz Designer Paper from the Patterns Stack.
Four Frames is a fabulous stamp set from the new Idea Book & Catalogue coming July 1st. This one coordinated with my polka dot paper, so I chose to use it, and added the greeting which is from last year's Saleabration, Vintage Labels. Isn't the pearl a cute addition? AND they are self adhesive - bonus!
Lastly I tied it up with Pear Pizazz Poly Stitched ribbon and adhered it to a Whisper White card base.
